concert night featuring Hassan Khan (Egypt), Tron Lennon (UK) and Tetsuya Hori (Japan/Berlin) at Lichtblick-Kino, Kastanienallee 77, Berlin 25.Jan.2008
Hassan Khan (Egypt)
performs "incidence" (60 minutes exactly)
For tonight's evening Khan presents a seamless continuous mixture of older and newer music pieces including: lust, figure and ground, KOMPRESSOR (music based on translating sets of dreams), lamptone, G.R.A.H.A.M., beautiful music and host. The Pieces are accompanied by different video sequences specially shot by the artist (a monochorome Red that slowly shifts color, vertiginous dream-like tracking/crane shots of solitary public lamps at night, a portrait of a photographer, a Lynchian moment where a desk lamp is transformed into something else etc..).?
"I give you permission to upload my concert.. sounds like a good idea "Hassan Khan"
Tron Lennon (UK)
With Paulâs turntable-centric practice + John's multi-faceted setup of guitar, assorted pedals, circuit-bent keyboards and other electronic instruments, Tron Lennon celebrate spontaneity and the ephemeral nature of sound. In exploring indeterminate and dysfunctional systems alongside more direct causal gestures, they embrace unpredictability as a strategy to probe, provoke and generate creative response.
In their current live set Paul uses Ms Pinky VJ software to manipulate digital video whilst John uses Max/Jitter and live camera feeds, allowing performance gesture to intervene in pre-recorded and synthetically generated visual materials.
"i happily agree to this...
we have the video available online at vimeo which also uses the audio
recording made by salon bruit:
all the best,
"yes, me too.
Tetsuya Hori (Japan/Berlin)
My pieces do not have a concept. That is the concept. The concept develops in the head of the listener. I get the feedback, and the feedback influences my music and like I see it.
I compose not only for instruments, but for things. The sound of the things is interesting. Not only the natural sound, but also the processed sound. The sources of sound are not necessarily special, but the sound, which results from the arrangement.
Each piece is different. Every time. It is affected by the atmosphere, which is created the area and the public. The piece mostly consists of article + computer program + space + public.
I want to show the listener nonsense. Interesting nonsense.
